in this thing, but how is the country going to react to a 10 gallon sized george w bush. what about the brains it takes to be the number one world leader? you have heard this thing the other way, could this guy be all cattle and no hat. hi, i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today, howard fineman, nia-malika henderson, andrea mitchell and michael duffy. first off today, the switch boards led up this work with protests over grid look. at the polls. the most motivated republican voters are not fallen to house republican tactics. 73% of voters blame president obama, not the house republicans. and republicans think that debt cash will help them defeat the president. here is how they'll play the president's failure to win the grand bargain on the day. they'll claim the president showed weak leadership, that he was not the post-partisan compromiser, he that is still a big spender and probably most crucial, they'll tie this crisis to the jobs crisis. howard, right now there is a lot of heat all over the place, a lot of it against the right, the tea party people. come next year, how will
, is probably in competition only with george w. bush for least liked among the modern u.s. presidents. but liberals in congress this crazy week are willing to put that aside, if the voice of reagan can help bring republicans to their senses on how unbelievable it is that they really are still debating whether or not to destroy the economy. in the midst of all of this is republican presidential politics. jon huntsman and his campaign manager parting ways today. and then of course you have the vice presidential nomination. they want chris christie to run for president, but he will not, hint, hint, pick him for vice president. and mark rubio announcing as if we have been waiting for it that he will make his first out of his home state speech as a senator next month at the reagan library in california. is that a thing? the new awkwardness of course with how fast things are changing in washington is that markio rubio has said as recently as this past weekend he probably will not vote to raise the debt ceiling. in march, he wrote an op-ed entitled why i won't raise the debt ceiling, and tha
, not deficits. president george bush dealt with that problem quickly. under george w. bush we started incuring massive deficits again, so we had to start raising the debt ceiling again routinely. >> we are confronting a situation we hadn't in a few years, and that is the debt limit, where the government can't borrow any money. it's frozen at $5.95 trillion. what are we going to do about that? >> we're going to raise it as a reasonable government must. this is really housekeeping, tim. this has nothing to say or do with future spending. this simply reflects decisions made in the past and it ought to be kept as the housekeeping matter it is. >> the housekeeping matter it is. that was then george w. bush budget director, mitch daniels, who is is indiana's governor. mitch daniels arguing that raising the debt ceiling ought to be treated as the housekeeping matter that it is. no news here, just do it, don't even talk about it. during the george w. bush administration, they did just treat the debt ceiling as a housekeeping matter. the debt ceiling was raised seven separate times during the george w.
. it is law. but not in texas, not in rick perry's texas. in 2005, the george w. bush administration ordered states to follow this law. rick perry said no. the supreme court said the only way to enforce the law is for congress to take action. so the obama administration took the very rare step of the federal government wading into a state criminal case. not over the issue of whether or not the prisoner was innocent or guilty, but over whether or not texas could kill him. without ever letting him get help from his home government. john ballinger, a lawyer who served the state department in the george w. bush department, arguing in this case, it should be obvious to anyone, including officials in texas, that if americans, including texans, are arrested and detained in some other country and the united states complains they have not been given their consular notice, it will be pointed out to us that the united states does not comply with our own international obligations on this. it cuts the legs out from under the state department, he said. to make arguments on behalf of americans who are deta
is he to the right of george w. bush? >> sure, i think so. you won't hear rick perry talk about a compassionate conservatism. i doubt you'll hear him talk about no child left behind and put a lot of emphasis on education. >> so he switched from a democrat all the way over to the right, he went right past the bushes. with the speed hi's taking he could end up all the way over. >> he overshot the moon. is he a credible presidential candidate? i'm just asking. >> absolutely. >> do you think the democrats would like to run against rick perry. rather than romney or bachmann? >> i think he's more unpredictable, but then again could come across as a buffoonish swaggering texan, and if you look at the polls, americans still blame george w. bush for the economic hole we're in, so any candidate that reminds people of george w. bush comes with a tremendous liability, even if george w. bush doesn't like him. and to come up and say i'm not compassionate, i don't care about education, i want to be a hardliner on immigration, i have no real economic make roe plan here will not win well, though

like the housekeeping matter it is. >> george w. bush's budget director, mitch daniels, explaining the bush administration hoped raising the debt ceiling would be handled by congress as a housekeeping matter. that's how it was handled over the last decade. in the george w. bush administration, congress raised the ceiling seven separate times. among the republicans raising their current tantrums among john boehnor, eric canton, mitch mcconnell, jon kyl, collectively they passed 19 votes during the bush administration to raise the debt ceiling, just those four guys. raising the debt ceiling is not something that usually has a big fight over it. sometimes it does, sometimes part of congress tries to leverage this vote because it's something that absolutely has to pass. in the same way crafty politicians will sometimes attach unrelated things to the pentagon budget because the pentagon budget everybody agrees has to pass, in that same way, politicians in the past tried to attach things to the debt ceilings. they not only failed, they so misunderstood the dynamics of their own party, jo

, president reagan, president george h.w. bush, president william jefferson clinton, president george w. bush and now president obama. at no time with any of those presidents prior to president obama was there ever a request for a 60-vote -- a 60-member vote to raise the debt limit ceiling. certainly with the number of times we raised the debt limit under president ronald reagan, not one single republican suggested we needed 60 votes, it was important enough for that. not one -- not once under president george h.w. bush. not once under president george bush did a single republican say it's so important that we have a 60-vote margin. and yet all of a sudden with president obama, the whole -- the whole criteria changes. suddenly, the rules that were good enough for republicans with a republican president are suddenly to be changed with this president. mr. president, the american public, republican or democratic, can see through that. this is a different standard. we are saying that this president must follow different rules than every president before him, republican or democratic. that just --
this before there's no other alternative. that's the argument george w. bush made. we have to wait until the very last minute. >> in terms of the, i guess, the trigger for invoking emergency powers here, that's the sort of thing where real harm would already have to be done to the country, already have to be in default and experiencing repercussions. >> i suspect if that were to happen, you would start to see the bond markets go crazy, dow start to plunge and at that point congress would realize they have brought on a terrible, terrible event, then you'd get a debt ceiling passed very quickly. so what you're really asking me is suppose if this happens, the markets start to melt down, the dow plunges like an as troid hurdling towards earth, in that case, yes, the president must act to save the republic. >> in terms of what means he might legally go forward, we know section four of the 14th amendment says the part of the united states shall not be questioned. is that the constitutional basis in which he'd make the claim to move forward? >> well, what he would probably argue at that point i

. >>> and is george w. bush secretly plotting to ruin a fellow texans presidential hopes? welcome to shot, i'm al sharpton. tonight's lead, fight to the debt. at a twitter town hall today, president obama blasted republicans for using the debt ceiling as a hostage in budget talks. >> the debt ceiling should not be something that is used as a gun against the heads of the american people to extract tax breaks for corporate jet owners. >> today, republicans definitely did not sound like they are in a mood to make a deal. at the white house, budget talks that are set for tomorrow. >> thursday's meeting will give us a chance to see if the president means what he says. until now the president's proposal are frankly indefensible np. >> so will republicans compromise even a little to get a deal or do they just want to be the party of no? joining me now, is republican congressman joe walsh from illinois. freshman lawmaker elected just last year with tea party support. so congressman, are republicans using a gun against the american people in these budget talks like the president says? >> hey, reverend sha
by the administration. do you have any allegation that's true? >> the allegation i can make, under george w. bush, u.s. attorneys were fired for not enforcing gun laws strictly enough. under this administration there seems to be a don't bother to enforce at all policy. so that disturbs us. there is less gun enforcement, illegal trans, a under administration that theoretically is more for gun control. george w. bush went out of his way to help the mexicans having a zero tolerance to illegal gun sales to end up in mexico. that should be answered by the administration. the bush policy should not have been reversed. >> bret: last thing, you mentioned confidential informant. are we to believe that they knew it was a gun runner and turned the other way on the incidents? >> i can't speak to the turn the other way with specificity. i can say they knew they had people who were participating in this and they did nothing to inform atf. that is disturbing that the agency we count on for gun and explosive protection was kept in the dark about these individuals. as by the way, were the a.t.f. agents in mexico cit
interesting to look at george w. bush. it raises the question to what extent did he really have the options that we like to do. we like to view our presidents with magical powers. that we make decisions in a vacuum in create policies, and people to speak to the president are semi-magical and so on and so forth. i live in austin, texas. to avoid the demagogues of washington. it's extremely important understand how little choice obama had. the relationship that george w. bush had with chancellor merkel was not based on the fact that george w. bush was a louse. he may have been. it was based on the fact that germany as a nation has interests, that they do not fully coincide any longer with those of the united states. it's impossible to pretend that we're in the middle of the cold war and his relationship -- if you take the president out of a different present in, regardless of his intentions, he will wind up with the same relationship. it's not a personal relationship. it's not that they get along or they don't get along or they like each other. germany is a nation of many, tens of megs of peo
